Discover and Appropriate our Gifts to God's Glory
Written by: Manal Haddad, Chaplin, Nazareth Baptist School




Value:

We are all gifted; we are to discover and appropriate our gifts to God's glory.

Reference:

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
I Corinthians 12:1-31
Romans 12:6-8

Reflection:

We are often impressed by high standard professional work that a working team in any company can accomplish. We trust a firm or a company if we know that the workers on the teams are gifted and qualified to get the job done!

In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul tells us that we, as the body of Christ, are one team. Everyone of us is an individual before God. Each individual is also a member of God's team, working within that body under the leadership of Christ the Head. And since the Head of this body is the Lord of every good gift, we can be sure that He will equip us to do the work He called us to do. And, as team workers do their best to accomplish any task given to them, so should we, different members in the body of Christ, work together as one team to do the work of Christ.

He graciously gives every member in His body His portion of gifts to get him to do the work. So if we as believers are the hands, feet, eyes, ears, heart ... the body of Christ, we are blessed with so many gifts to get this body ministering and serving people who have needs. Christ can meet every need! That's why the Spirit equips us with diversities of gifts to be able to know the need and lead people to Christ. We, the body, are gifted in sharing words of knowledge, wisdom and healing. Gifts also include discerning spirits, prophecy, teaching, preaching and acts of faith. These gifts enable the body to be light in the darkness.

Are we getting the work done for our Master? This is a gnawing question in each believer's life. With this question in the back of our minds, at Nazareth Baptist School we daily encourage students to discover God's gift in their lives and to use their gifts for His glory.

Prayer:

Please pray for continued success in academics and for spiritual growth.
